I’ve finally hit my third trimester! I promise you.. when you feel like I have up until now, it’s something to celebrate! Looking back on my second trimester there were a few standout things that I just wasn’t expecting! First, my bump came out of nowhere one morning. I was a late bloomer to the bump club, but I swear I just woke up one morning and it was there! It was the strangest thing. Being pretty naive to all things pregnancy, I did not realize it would also have a mind of it’s own. This thing changes everyday. Sometimes it feels manageable and other days it just feels large and in charge. Some days I look like I am “carrying low” and other days it looks like I am “carrying high.” My sweet babe, also has a mind (and schedule) of his own. Some days he truly feels like he is kickboxing on my ribcage, non stop. Then there are other times, where it feels like the “butterflies” I was expecting it to feel like.
I did have much more energy in the second trimester. (Thank goodness!) Thanks to said energy, I’ve done lots of “nesting” around our house. Not sure how productive it actually is, but I spent lots of time organizing different spaces. Sometimes it’s more of a game of musical chairs. Objects from one area end up in a different area, until I clean that area and then they just get shuffled around yet again. Keeping busy seems to help with my anxiousness of the baby arriving. So, hey, whatever works.
Actual pants, are kind of a thing of the past. I wear a few pairs if I know I’m not going to be out too long. If not, leggings or dresses it is. I loved this one because it is light and silky and allows room for that ever changing baby bump. It’s all about the comfort as I step into the home strech!
